The CW network is playing it safe this fall, adding only three new series to its schedule and keeping Monday and Thursday nights intact.
Tuesday night will feature the all-new lineup of 90210 followed by Surviving the Filthy Rich. On Wednesdays, America’s Next Top Model will be joined by Stylista, a new reality show from the creators of ANTM and Project Runway. Comedies Everybody Hates Chris and The Game will relocate from Sundays to Fridays, where CW execs are hoping for a little counterprogramming magic by offering the “only comedy option” of the night (unless you’ve got cable, that is).
Supernatural comedy Reaper won’t return until midseason.
